Career Path: Business Development Manager, MyRepublic Singapore
Location: Singapore

My career hasn't always been smooth sailing, before I studied this course, I was working within the field of social media marketing. Right after my national service, I had some time to decide what I needed to supplement and support my business, therefore I decided to pursue this course to alleviate my understanding and competency within the current business landscape.

What are you doing now?Justin Sim

As the Business Development Manager at MyRepublic Broadband Singapore, I have been instrumental in kickstarting and growing the company's e-commerce business by increasing online sales and launching a new e-commerce platform that expanded our product offerings. Additionally, I have successfully developed two new business ventures that have generated a significant amount of revenue and secured partnerships with several new companies.

I am proud to have played a role in these achievements, but I recognise that they would not have been possible without the collaboration and support of my team and colleagues. I remain committed to identifying new opportunities for growth and innovation and contributing to the continued success of the company.

As we navigate the challenges of the pandemic and adapt to changing market conditions, I am dedicated to leveraging my expertise and experience to help MyRepublic Broadband Singapore remain competitive and thrive in the years ahead.
